Giordano, Mario - Aunt Poldi and the Sicilian Lions

Recently widowed Poldi moves to Sicily in order to quietly drink herself to death with a sea view. But fate intervenes. When she finds a corpse on the beach, she becomes a potential suspect in the murder case and falls in love with the police detective in charge. A zany, comic mystery laced with Italian sensuality and humor.

If Alexander McCall Smith and Anthony Bourdain collaborated on a Sicilian murder mystery laced with wit, food and sex, this would be the result.
